Morning Glories, part 3
Here are the explanations of the upper part of the design.
I added the following 2 colors, DMC 3078 and 225 to the palette proposed in the introductory post. The stitches used are the long and short stitch with 1 thread and the stem stitch with 2 threads.
I remind you that to get a nice result, it is necessary to surround each piece of the design with a split backstitch 1 thread.
Stems and leaves
As usual, I started by embroidering a split backstitch 1 thread all around the whole pattern.
Note that I made a small change to the horizontal petal lapel, finding it too thin on the right side.
I then placed the various veins with the color 797.
Then fill the upper part (in the shade as under the lapel) with the color 3838 intercalated between the veins.
Finish with color 3078.
I added a few stitches with the color 160 on the right side of the pattern to give an impression of shade. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture but you will see it in the following photos.
Fill the remaining part with the color 797 by adding a few stitches in the top of the petals to give more life to the flower.
Embroider the backside of the petal with satin stitch and the color 3840 respecting the direction of the stitches.
